Shaken fists and “shakedown”


The Facebook home page for U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, is quite the gathering spot today after he issued an apology to BP officials for the $20 billion fund negotiated by President Barack Obama. He called it a "shakedown."

Many of the more than 425 comments are calling for Barton to resign his post and only 38 people have clicked the "like" icon, indicating they side with Barton. Reading through the comments, it's very hard to find many sympathizers.

Barton may need to start looking today for a new job after November.
